Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita)is familiar and pleasant to most. Peppermint Oil is very intense and is far more concentrated than most other steam distilled essential oils. At low dilutions, it is fresh, minty and quite uplifting. Peppermint Essential Oil contains menthol. Menthol induces a cooling sensation, and use of Peppermint Oil (at low dilution) can help to cool and refresh. Menthol is also known to help ease and muscular aches and pains.
